Trailer Available for "Color of the Cross"
It is still two months long before moviegoers can see "Color of the Cross", another depiction of the last 48 hours of Jesus Christ's life, on theaters as scheduled on October 27, 2006. With this span of time, it sure will be such a long wait for those who have big curiosity on the movie, which turns out to be the first big screen feature to portray Christ as a black man, but here is the good news for them. Nu-Lite Entertainment as the company producing the movie has delightfully provided the trailer, and those who are eager to see it therefore can take a look of it at AceShowbiz.com.
Shot on 35mm anamorphic film, "Color of the Cross" is written and directed by Jean Claude LaMarre who also has a starring role there while presenting Debbi Morgan, David Gianopoulos, Elya Baskin, plus Ananda Lewis in the cast. It opens with Jesus and his disciples approaching Jerusalem for the Last Supper to then unfold with the events leading up to Jesus' capture and crucifixion.
Fully aware that his work may bring controversy due to the portrayal of a black Jesus, LaMarre has his own opinion concerning this matter. "Our movie is not about dividing Christians, but broadening their perspective," so he remarked. For centuries, Leonardo da Vinci's portrayal of Jesus has been widely accepted. We are offering an alternative image."
Though so, debates on racial issues seems to be inevitable as there has already been various response from public which have taken their own sides in relation to the image of Christ. Some of which firmly stated that skin color does not really matter as long as the picture values the essence of Christ as everyone's savior while the other argue by pointing out the origin of Jesus of being a Hebrew who has olive skin and dark curly hair.
Seating as the producers are Rev. Cecil "Chip" Murray and Kenneth Halsband and adding Marc Porterfield, Lila Aviv, and Jessie Levostre as this flick's executive producers.
